Voice of Elmo implicated in Underage homosexual relationship….Say it aint so Elmo!!

Kevin Clash the voice of the Iconic Sesame Street puppet Elmo, has been implicated in scandal that involves him having a relationship with a young man when this young man was only 16 years old. The young name who’s name has not been released to protect his identity but the young man who is now 24 years old claims that he and Clash engaged in a sexual relationship during the time the young man was still a 16 year old minor. Now none of these have been substantiated at this point due to a sufficient lack of evidence of the relationship actually taking place during the young mans teen years, however clash has admitted to a relationship with the accuser but states that the entire relationship took place when they young man was over the age of 18 when both parties were consenting adults.

Clash has been suspended from the show not due to the allegations but due to email communications that Clash had with the young man that did not detail any information about the relationship but due to the fact that it was personal interaction through the use of company email. After an email conversation between the accuser and Clash, the accuser met with sesame street and subsequently hired an attorney because he felt the show executives were trying to silence him. The courts have at this point decided that there is insufficient evidence to prove the relationship took place while the accuser was underage but the accuser sates that he will pursue his case.
Below is a link to a TMZ article with a little more detail about the case.

Grenade Launcher Hoax stirs Controversy

This video was shot by a Pheonix man named Micheal T. Hurley in where he had his 16 year old nephew dressed as a terrorist and tout around a faux Rocket Propelled Grande launcher in the middle of neighborhood while he had the camera rolling. The young boy in the video actually walked around the city pointing the RPG at cars, and people for over 15 minutes with no immediate response from authorities after several concerned calls to 911 from witnesses. Hurley stated that the entire video was done in order test police response time to an emergency situation.

Personally I agree with the ends to test your theory but I feel that this stunt was dangerous and over the top. This young man could have actually been shot on sight by authorities if they felt he was a legitimate threat, or a misguided vigilante might have taken matter into their own hands. Although I feel that emergency response times are grossly unacceptable, I feel that stunts like this only add to the problem and not the solution. refer to the story of the boy who cried wolf…after while no one cared when there was a real emergency. A Perfect example is my home city of Detroit where police no longer show up to calls that a re not life threatening emergency i.e. the reports of guns, gunshots, or gunfire mainly.
This is the reason we cannot waste time and resources on hoax’s and pranks like this video. I agree that things need to change as far response time but this is not he way to go. you can watch the short clip and judge for yourself. Below is a link to an article that describes the entire events of in full detail.

“End of an Era in INDY”

After a 14 year reign atop NFL greatness Peyton Manning has parted ways with the Indianapolis Colts, the very team that drafted in 1998. Since Peyton became and NFL quarterback he has only called the Colts organization and both he and the colts have leaps and bounds together as a unit and has undoubtedly changed the face of the NFL. Me being a long time colts and Peyton Manning fan it saddens me to see Peyton go, but as a Businessman and as a self proclaimed NFL expert I understand whyt it was time to part ways. Peyotn has had some serious neck injuries that have required invasive surgical repair on his 34 year old body coupled with the potential abuse that all NFL quarterbacks face the Colts felt that it was time to move on before they had to pay the $28 million dollar pay day that Peyton was owed come March 8th. Also the Colts have the first pick in the draft where many expert believe Stanford QB Andrew Luck will be chosen number 1 overall. So in the position the colts are they chose to release the face of their franchise and basically start rebuilding the colts from the ground up… especially after a dismal 2-14 2011 season, one of the worst in franchise history. So today visibly emotional colts owner Jim Irsay and Peyton manning held a press conference to announce the decision and finalize the end of an era. This is will be a very trying time for Peyton fan’s and colts fans alike seeing how big of impact Peyton had on the entire city of Indy.

With Free agency just a few days away two things are for certain, 1. Peyton is the hottest free agent prospect in years and he will have NO trouble finding an NFL Team and 2. Andrew Luck has a tough road ahead and a hell of a learning curve. But in any case best of Luck to Peyotn(IN MY EYES THE GREATEST) and to the colts.
